Us Sri Lankans love to hate Aussie sports teams, especially when it comes to cricket. Often cricketers like Warne and Ponting have got under our skin.
So it is no surprise that I was rooting for the Pakistani team as I was watching the Australia vs. Pakistan T20 world cup semi-final last Friday. With just two overs to go, Aussies looked down and out. But what a comeback it was eventually. You cannot help but admire their self belief and the determination in pulling it off. I wish the Sri Lankan team can take a page out of that.
Hats off to the Aussies.
